New Delhi: Israel has offered assistance to India in fencing up the border with Pakistan to put a stronger defensive front to combat infiltrating terrorism in the country.

After the deadly Uri attack where 18 Indian soldiers were killed by terrorists and which subsequently drew widespread criticism against Pakistan, Israel Ambassador Daniel Carmon said on Friday that Israel is willing to co-operate with India on its counter-terrorism efforts.

“Israel has the expertise, because it has been under threat. We do share similar challenges. We have the solutions. We can work together on the solution. We have shown in other areas that we can cooperate and this might and should be the case here as well,” said Carmon.

Israel also said that it is following the development in Kashmir with close interest after the latest attack by terrorists against the Indian Army. “This cooperation is there, was there and will continue to be there,” Carmon said.

“There is a need to confront terrorism. There is a tactical way to do this. There is an international, diplomatic way to do this and I am sure and confident that India knows exactly what it needs to do,” the ambassador said.
